Yeah I agree, I wouldn't go for AOL.
I'm with NTL and they are not bad, though some people are against them. I've been with them for 3 years and haven't really had a problem. Only a few times where the internet connection has cut out and I've needed to reset the box downstairs, but I'm running from digital too, so it runs though there.
In a few weeks, were being updated to a 2mb broadband; were at 600k at the moment
and this doesn't cost anything more! Were paying about £20 something pound though, but it an unlimited, uncapped service, and soon will be more worth it after this upgrade.
At the moment strangely though, were getting about 90kbs speed while downloading, so might even be higher than 600k. There just being pushed up... I like it though, not complaining
Tiscali seems good too, though if you look at the small print in the advert, I'm sure it says something about a capped service. Its fine though for most peoples uses since many people don't download much.
But for people that like to download stuff, like stream off websites, this is eaten up rather quickly, and is best not have to think all the time, like old modems used to do to you...
